So, this week it was BurgerGirl's turn. I chose to do something a little lighter than last week's selection. This is a Rachel Ray recipe that I clipped from a magazine.
I really didn't change anything with this recipe. I made 3/4 of it simply because of the size of the packages of meat that I bought, so I just cut everything accordingly, making 6 patties instead of 8. I used a grill pan as opposed to a grill.
I made the slaw first, but it did not sit for more that half an hour. I'll have to see tomorrow how it is after sitting over night. I have to say, I enjoyed the crunch.
There's just no getting around it...turkey is dry. The great thing about this recipe is that the slaw provides much needed moisture and, as BurgerBoy commented, almost gives the illusion of a "juicy burger". The patties are fragrant and tasty, another thing difficult to achieve with turkey. As I mentioned before, the slaw has a nice crunch, sure to be softened with tomorrows leftovers, but we'll see. I used a "hot" mango chutney and the spiciness was a welcome addition. The pitas I bought were whole wheat and "thin" making them lower carb and higher in fiber. All in all, not a bad burger. Fantastic for a healthy meal (I served them with homemade oven baked fries) and sure to be a hit with anyone who loves a variety of spices.
